Our aim is to bring together male-to-female transsexuals & others undergoing gender reassignment. Whatever stage you are at, from trying to decide to fully post-operative, we would like to hear from you. The gender reassignment process is a very demanding and difficult emotional experience, from struggling with the agony of belonging to the wrong sex all the way to recovering from major surgery.  We are a self help group serving Bristol and the surrounding area.

Hate crime is any offence committed against a person or property which is motivated by the offender’s hatred of people because they are seen as being different.

The intention behind TransBristol is to create a safe space where trans identified people in the Bristol area can share ideas, provide support and plan things. This WordPress site will act (for the moment, at least) as a platform for ordering and accessing information . There is a Facebook group where you can input ideas and discuss stuff. There is also an e-mail address: We hope to develop in a non-hierarchical, co-operative and consensual decision-making sort of way. If you want to get involved, that would be great. If you want to stand at the side, that’s also fine. This site is a work in progress. Just at the moment, it’s just me, Dru, putting information in and hoping for the best. If there’s something you think should be on this site, let me know! Further admins will probably get involved later. The Facebook group is the place for free-for-alls. Play nicely! Update: been adding pages of info and links. They reflect my own perspective, and so are weighted in a slightly MtF way. Hopefully this will change as more people get involved. We want as many perspectives as possible. Binary, non-binary, genderqueer, whatever. Anything under the trans umbrella should belong here.
